The libation: On what would have been the author’s 124th birthday, we bring you something R’lyeh, e’speciallyeh delicious. Combine 2oz Kraken dark rum, 1oz elder(gods)flower liqueur, 1oz fresh lime juice (the green, sticky spawn of the stars), and a dash or two of Angostura bitters. Recite the incantation (Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn) while shaking with ice. Serve in a rocks glass, garnish with a tentacle twist of lime.

Pair with a dinner of odori-don, if you’re feeling brave in the face of the indifferent universe. And please, summon the Great Old Ones responsibly.

R’lyeh proud of this one.




This is Bobby (rocket nose) and Ani (spotty face). They are a 6 year old (born February 2008) super bonded Calico sibling pair currently living in Brooklyn. They need a new home!

Both are in perfect health, good litter box manners, playful, extremely cuddly, and good eaters. They need to be re-homed due to no fault of their own. There is a new person in the household with debilitating allergies. This was a very hard decision for their person to make, but they’re just not getting the attention and affection they need in their current situation. 

They are great with children, not great with dogs, and would be OK to live with other cats. 

I’ve known them both since they were tiny handfuls and they are really incredibly sweet and playful and mischievous and really, really ridiculously good looking. If I could take them in I absolutely would.

They’re not micro-chipped, but their person would absolutely assume the cost and have this done with their new person’s info. They’re up to date on all their shots and tests. Their person is willing to transport them pretty far for the perfect home - anywhere drive-able from NYC. Help with food and litter costs for the first year would also be possible if someone wanted to take them in but had limited resources.

If you’d like more information - or more pictures! Or would just like to meet them in person (they’re in Bed Stuy in Brooklyn, a few short blocks from the A/C at Nostrand) please drop a note in my ask-box.

Please reblog!

Thank you!

Boost for the night crowd.

I’m literally their emergency contact at the vet. I love these babes second only to California.

I’m heartbroken but I’ve gotta help my friend first.

Please reblog? Thanks.

AUGH if my roommate weren’t horrifically allergic, these sweethearts would come home with me in a second, but alas. Signal boost, Brooklyn pals!
